Serena opened up Wimbledon in a dominant fashion, demolishing Amra Sadikovic, 27, in two sets, 6-2, 6-4. She ran into some problems in the 2nd round against Christina McHale, 24, but roared back to win. Since then, she hasn’t lost a set, thrashing Svetlana Kuznetsova, 31, (7-5, 6-0) and beating Anastasia (6-4, 6-4) in the quarterfinals.
Elena has met similar success. She put away Tamira Paszek, 25, in the first round, before storming past Andrea Petkovic, 28, Julia Boserup, 24 and Dominika Cibulkova, 27. Elena only lost a set when she faced Ekaterina Makarova, 28, in the 4th round.
With a victory at Wimbledon, Serena would tie Steffi Graf’s, 47, record for most major titles (in the Open era of Tennis) of 22. Margaret Court, 73, holds the all time record of 24. Serena has come very close to tying (and beating) the record in 2016, as she lost to Garbine Muguruza, 22, at the French Open, and to Angelique Kerber, 28, at the Australian Open.
Serena and Angelique could meet for the rematch in the Wimbledon finals. Or, it could be a clash between sisters. Angelique faces Serena’s sister, Venus Williams, 36, in the other semi-final match. If Serena wins her match, no matter who she faces for the title, it’ll be someone very familiar with her.
Who do you think is going to win this match, HollywoodLifers? Serena or Elena.
